Due to the forecast the committee agreed to postponed the 8 a side competition which was due to take place on Bank Holiday Monday, 31st August 2015. This is the first time we have had to cancel the competition since 2005 when the format was first introduced. The reason for postponing was the risk of having to run the competition over two days as any interruption (minimum of just 1 hour of no play) would most definitely have required member clubs to plan a second day for the completion of the competition. With the daylight getting shorter this may have even required 3 days depending on how many games would have been interrupted.
The competition has not been totalled cancelled as plans are in place to consider a later date in September, which is subject to ground availability or introduce a popular format such as tape ball on all weather pitches.
Further information will be made available once we have confirmed arrangements.
